Susan Jameson was born in Penrith, Cumberland, UK in 1944. After leaving school she studied at the Carlisle College of Art from 1960-64, where she won a travel scholarship to Florence, Italy in 1963. From this, she spent a year at Goldsmith's College of Art in London. After exploring different mediums, Susan Jameson became interested in print making and In 1971 Jameson continued her studies by taking a course in print making at the Central School of Art, and working as a master printer in an etching studio for two years. After various jobs, Jameson now devotes all her time to her art career and producing prints. Susan Jameson has become one of the leading exponents of the mezzotint printing technique. The prints often reflect her origins in the Cumbrian countryside, for example, dramatic landscapes, moonscapes and sunsets.

Susan Jameson has exhibited throughout Europe and the USA, holding many one–man shows, notably at the Graffiti Gallery in London. Her work is in public and private collections throughout the world, including the British Council Collection and the Modern Art Gallery, Naples. Her work has been shown in Print Biennales in Krakow, Ljubljana and Biella.

Susan Jameson specialises in mezzotints which has become a rare form in recent years. Jameson finds this one of the most exciting printmaking methods. Mezzotint is among the most physically demanding and difficult mediums to perfect, hence there are not many artists using this art form.
